Christopher R. Slaughter is an associate professor of theatrical design and theatre history at King University, and is also the artistic director of King University’s Twin City Radio Theatre. Celebrating its 10th year, the Twin City Radio Theatre’s mission is to produce classic old-time radio plays and provide a unique theatrical experience for contemporary audiences, not unlike what studio audiences might have experienced during a live broadcast in the 1940s or 50s. In honor of the 200th anniversary of the publication of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Chris will discuss the ways in which that novel has been adapted for radio, with live performance of selections from selected productions.
